life is something set to music
i can hear it when im sad

theres a power
when yr near me
in our heads, in our bones
i know nothing but im guessing
when we die
we’re not alone

when i was young, i began dreaming my days away, closing my eyes with headphones and falling into my own private world. thousands of scattered cds laid next to me and i never stopped listening, music was the only place to comfortably rely upon. growing up, one of my favorite albums was *siren* by heather nova.
there was a certain directness in the way her voice lingered to every soft melody that made everything feel so safe inside my fantasy land. listening to the sounds of ms. nova years later, her beautiful haunting familiar songs immediatley take me back.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    You caught me off guard with this one. I am a big sampler of everything I don’t know, but I take everything with a bit of salt. These tracks made me stop everything else I was doing and go looking for details about the artist. Maybe it wears off, but I like what I’m hearing right now.
    Thank you for sharing :)
    I like your writing and your site looks great!
